SHREVEPORT, La. (U.S. Department of Justice) – United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced that Jacory Dejuan Robinson, 24, of Shreveport, was sentenced Wednesday to 13 months in prison by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. for lying on an application to buy a firearm at a pawnshop. He was also sentenced to three years of supervised release.

Robinson filled out paperwork on March 28, 2018 at a Shreveport pawnshop to purchase a handgun. He marked “no” in the box asking if he had ever been convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence, even though he had previously pleaded guilty on May 2, 2017 to one count of misdemeanor simple battery of his girlfriend in Greenwood, Louisiana. He pleaded guilty to the federal charge on January 15, 2019.

The ATF conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney J. Aaron Crawford is prosecuting the case.

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. Project Safe Neighborhoods is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
